Chaga has been used and revered in Northern Europe, Russia,
Siberia and China for centuries. .

tea and was used as a treatment for serious illness and for
digestive complaints such as dysentery and parasites. It was and
still is also used as a decoction by hunters and foresters who
drank it to alleviate hunger and tiredness and to enhance
stamina and endurance.
In 1991 Otzi the Iceman, a 5300-year-old mummy was discovered
in the Austrian alps. He was carrying a type of chaga mushroom
in his pouch, which it is believed he used to kill gut parasites and
for stamina on his long freezing journey. He was also carrying
another similar mushroom which was used to carry embers to
start fires easily.
